Alice Peyton, daughter of Robert and Ann (Rush) Peyton,was born after 1764 in Virginia. She married George Noland, probably in Virginia, before 1785, when they witnessed her father's will.


The Elsey Jane Billingslea buried in the Batchelor-Noland Cemetery & referred to as the mother of Pearce Noland was probably Walter's wife Alice (Walter Billingslea was guardian of George's children and records show Walter and Alice Billingslea prior to 1800, when George died). The Noland family had always assumed that George's widow, Alice (Peyton) had married Walter after George's death, but she may have preceded George in death.

Elsey Jane Billingsly, died 1839 about age 80, buried in the Batchelor-Noland Cemetery at Sligo in Bovina, Warren County, Mississippi.

Mary Gregg, posting in the Peyton Forum, cites a will by Robert Peyton, with a wife named Ann:

Will Book A, Franklin County, North Carolina, 1785-1797; Wills, Estate Records, Guardian Accounts. Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr.
(Franklin Co., N. C. WB A:2) November 30, 1785 - Will of Robert Payton. To wife Anne Payton, all the estate to raise "my small children". Made in the presence of George Nolan and wife.
Wits: George Noland, Alec Noland.

Both Alec and Elsy are nicknames for Alice.

also in support that Elsy Billingslea buried in Noland-Batchelor Cemetery is Pearce's step-mother (Walter's wife, not George's widow who then married Walter): 1759 birth (based on tombstone information of 80 years old at death in 1839) is before reported marriage of Robert and Ann (Rush) Peyton in 1764. A daughter Alice born 1765 or later fits with husband (George) born 1763 and sons born 1788, 1789, 1793 (according to attached profiles).

Witnesses to Robert Peyton's 1785 will were George Noland and his wife Alec. Both Alec and Elsey are nicknames for Alice.

a theory: Alec (Peyton) Noland and Alsy Jane Billingslea are two different people. One the birth mother of Pearce & one a step-mother (after George Noland died in 1800, his orphans were wards of Walter Billingslea; the family always assumed Walter married the widow, but what if they were truly orphans & Alec had died before 1800?).

from Robert's profile: Robert Peyton's will, recorded November 30, 1785, in Franklin County, N.C., was "made in the presence of George Nolan and wife. Wits: George Noland and Alec Noland."
